    Jack Ryan, who has just been named CIA deputy director of intelligence, is enraged when he discovers that he has been left out of the loop of Columbian operations. Several of America's most highly trained soldiers are stranded on an unfinished mission that, according to all records, never existed. Ryan decides to get the men out.

    Overall

    First I want to say this is a great book, in print! I spend my days driving and love to listen to books on my Ipod.
    The first thing I noticed was the narrator talks like he is dictating a long letter. I do not think he ever takes a breath and he talks very fast.
    Sometimes he moves from one chapter to the next without a pause and I get lost. I also find it hard to distinguse between characters because his voice never seems to change.
    These things may not bother some people but this is a very long book and the narrator of a book can either make or break a book.

    For four aging men in the terror-stricken town of Milburn, New York, an act inadvertently carried out in their youth has come back to haunt them. Now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past - and get away with murder. Peter Straub's classic best seller is a work of "superb horror" (Washington Post Book World) that, like any good ghost story, stands the test of time - and conjures our darkest fears and nightmares.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure. It's a good book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not sure.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He's not very good.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is a wonderful read, in print. I have read this several times since Peter Straub wrote it and have always enjoyed it.
    I thought I would try out the spoken book while I drive, I drive a truck long haul and it helps the time go by.
    The narrator does O.K. when he does a male voice but the female voices are absurd. Little girl, old women or young they all sound as if they're already dead.

    Twenty years ago, top agents from the CIA and KGB banded together to bring down the Matarese Circle, an international cabal of powerbrokers and assassins whose sole objective was to achieve worldwide economic domination. Now the bloody Matarese dynasty is back - and the only man with the power to stop it may have already run out of time....

    What would have made The Matarese Countdown better?

    A better story ?


    What was most disappointing about Robert Ludlum’s story?

    If Robert Ludlum wrote this he was just passing time. Weak plot, someone tried to cash in on the first novel without coming up with a fresh story.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Prichard’s performance?

    Flat delivery of lines. Of course he had nothing to work with.


    What character would you cut from The Matarese Countdown?

    The evil bad guys. And most of the heroes.

    In Vienna for a top-secret meeting with ex-Mossad agent Issadore Galan, Micah Dalton senses that something is very wrong on the streets of the Ring District. Dalton's aggressive response to enemy surveillance makes him the target of a complex plot with the potential to shatter America's strategic alliances with the rest of the civilized world.

    Robert says: "Stone delivers another excellent adventure "
    "Having a hard time with this one."
    Overall

    First off let me say I have just finished the first half of this book but I feel I have a few things I can say. This is the third time the narrator has been switched, the first one was great and Audible should has stuck with him in my opinion but that is just personal taste.
    What drives me to write this is how wordy this book seems to be, I really don't need to get a complete description of every surface, color of the sky or set of clothes a person is wearing.
    It seems that every change of scene requires five minutes of talk to just get to to a little action.
    Also the evolution of some characters seems a bit strange, Mandy Pownall has gone from what seemed like a office worker to a spy / hit woman and now seems to be on her own to do as she pleases.
    I really enjoyed the first of this series but I think this book could use some trimming and and still be a good book.

    In this gripping best seller, Robert Ludlum spins a web of suspense and high-stakes intrigue as two men who are sworn mortal enemies must cooperate in order to foil a sinister plot to topple the world's governments. Ludlum's recollection of his war buddies gave him the idea for this book. Hear the details in the sample below.

    Doug says: "The Matarese Circle"
    "Too much missing"
    Overall

    This is one of the best books I have read. That being said this version is terrible. The abridged version cuts out so much of the story I felt like it was not the same book. If you want to read a good story buy the paperback.

    Kat Richardson excels at creating vivid, fast-moving novels that blend urban fantasy with paranormal mystery. In Greywalker, Seattle P.I. Harper Blaine is viciously attacked and murdered - but after exactly two minutes, somehow she returns to life. Now she's seeing strange things all around her - dark visions from the shadow world - and living a normal life may no longer be possible no matter how hard she tries.

    Nathan Caroland says: "A fun take on the paranormal ..."
    "Hard listen"
    Overall

    This book may not be as bad as I think but it was so hard to listen to the narration. The narrator had one voice that sounded okay, the rest where just plain bad. I bought two of these and regret the purchase.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    Overall

    If you want to throw your money away buy this book, otherwise keep looking. The names misleading-I thought the book would be fun from the discription but found the only thing in ruin was my time. Boring, drawn out and inane. I drive truck for a living and listen to alot of books on tape and this was one of the worst I have listened to. No ruined citys or temples, no ghosts demons or even monsters. I wont give away the storyline but buy this at your own risk.
